Step 1

In a blender or mini chopper, puree parsley, garlic, vinegar, water, oregano, 11/2 teaspoons salt,1/4 teaspoon pepper and pepper flakes until relatively smooth. Remove 3 tablespoons chimichurri to a small bowl; stir in 1 teaspoon oil. Rub mixture in bowl all over steak; cover and marinate for 8 hours and up to 24 hours.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to remaining chimichurri; reserve in refrigerator.

Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray. Preheat grill to high heat.

Wipe marinade off steak and pat steak dry with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel; season steak with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Grill steak until medium rare, flipping once, about 5 to 7 minutes per side (or longer until desired degree of doneness). Remove steak from grill; let rest a few minutes before slicing against grain. Serve steak drizzled with reserved chimichurri.
